An arborist's view of sustainable landscapes: The Sustainable Sites Initiative is emphasizing many of the practices arborists have developed and promoted for over 25 years, including soil and plant analysis, comprehensivesoil management, plant health care and integrated pest management, invasivespecies management, and a variety of "green" programs. I will discuss how Landscape Architects can, and should, work together to make landscapes sustainable.

(BTW, The photo is of what is claimed to be the most photographed tree in the world. But it probably isn't really. It probably isn't sustainable either.)
